I highly recommend playing a rated room. That way you can check your stats. I played my first four games a little while ago. The first one I was minoan, agaisnt, uh, something - think it was PHoenicen. Anyway, he never got out of Bronze, and died a horrible death - I went away with a HUGE ego and an inflated sense of self-worth. Then I started another game, also 1 vs 1, against Phoeny - it was _madwand_ I think. It was the best game I've played in a long time - enjoymentwise. It went on for HOURS. He started off controlling the sea, which hurt, because the sea went from one end to the other, with TWO squares of land on the sides. His elephants and such died to my minoan compies, heles, and heavy cats, and after he ran out of gold he started sending in scythes. AFter a while I too ran out of gold, and since Minoan has no good non-gold unit I was killed. HIs ruling the sea didnt help, as ther was a big gold min on the shore...

So, i left, thinking, - this must be one of the pros - I just wasn't lucky. And I started another game. Oneof my opponents was, snicker snicker, palmryan. I chortled with glee at the thought of what I would to the the poor guy with compies. Well, my starting position wasn't that great, but it was not big deal, and just after I get improved bowman there are palmyran chariots all over my base and war galleys shooting my ships. I began to realize that I wasn't that great....

I have a few questions on rate rooms, when you resign, do they count that as an imcomplete?


I have on imcomplete game, where the entire enemy team mysteriously was 'disconnected' at once, just after, by some strange twist of fate, my allies had ca's all over their base.

General,

If you resign, you get a loss. If your opponents pull the plug together, or all drop, you get an incomplete. Which makes 1v1 very dangerous in the fact that if your opponet pulls the plug, you are harmed too. Rearly in a team setting do all of them pull the plug since it is obvious that they are cheating.

Ghost, I'm not jumping on the bandwagon of bashing you cause you think you're expert. But let me say this: If you think playing the trial version on the zone and winning most of the time qualifys you as a certified good player on RM you are sorely mistaken. First off, Trial version is pop 50. Second of all, EVERYONE BLOWS in the trial version. Everyone is a hardcore ghetto newbie. I'm not kidding either. I started with the trial vesion and I remember making a room entitled "GOOD PLAYERS" and getting people who made 9 peons and cussed me out for bronze rushing them. Then I titled the games "EXPERT'S ONLY" and you know what players i found? I found the guys who make 14 peons and claim tool rushing is "cheap". These people really thought they were experts because they can seriously dominate all the guys who only make 9 peons.
Point of the story, Trial Version don't mean Jack!

oh the glory days of the trial ..... I remember kicking peoples butts 3v1 because I would do a carthage boat boom and iron in the mid 30s, most of the other people were bronzed in the 20s, and the medit map in the trial was known, so we all tooled and walled off the choke points....

I don't know what makes me qualified wo respond to this, because I still technically suck, but anyway... When I first thought that I was good, I played shang, and bronzed in 14 min with reveal when I did well. I then sent composite bowmen to attack. By playing only newbies, I got my rating up to 1750, but then I decided to start playing real players. Now I am 1590, but am over deserving, because I have 11 incompletes and a record of 33 and 16. So I feel that it is better to show your real skill, even if it isn't very high...

Someone should just challenge Ghost.

I have been playing the game since 97 and after 1000 games, I could join the Average Players clan, then again, they might be too good.

Another thing Ghost, beating the computer on hardest doesn't make anyone an expert. :P

Actually the ROR demo did allow you to iron, BUT there were no super units, so Eles were pretty much the most powerful thing on the map... he he he

Why is everyone suddenly talking about the trial version and playing against the computer? Ghost is a DEATHMATCH player, folks. If you're going to bash the guy (as I have), at least bash him in the right context, okay?

KaBan their are probably more maps out for trial than full ror. Not that I care about this stupid post, I thought was dead. I cant say im better than you all, because I havent played you. Also if someone real good beats you it doesnt mean that they are better. They could be real bad then later come back and Win. I tried Ranked but thats just bull****. I played a couple games and I already have 5 disconnects.
